CDF Corporation exhibiting IBC and Bag-in-Box at the IDFA Ice Cream Technology Conference

CDF Corporation, a global company that specializes in the manufacture and sale of high quality pail, drum, intermediate bulk container and bag in box liners and flexible packaging, will display an IBC tote liner and bag-in-box at booth# 5 at the International Dairy Foods Association Ice Cream Technology Conference.

 

The International Dairy Foods Association Ice Cream Technology Conference will be held April 12th through the 13th at the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida. This event is for ice cream and frozen dessert professionals. The Ice Cream Technology Conference focuses specifically on frozen dessert research, technology, new market trends, food safety, labeling and opportunities.

 

CDF offers a wide range of flexible products that satisfy ice cream manufacturers’ needs. Form-fit IBC (cube-shaped) liners provide high performance in critical applications, such as top-fill applications using a bridge or automated filler; containers with no access doors for placing a liner at the bottom; high speed fills and viscous products that would get caught in the folds of pillow-shaped liners.

 

Air-Assist® liners are specially designed for convenient dispense and improved evacuation of high viscosity products. The Air-Assist liner features a Form-fit liner with an attached air bladder. As the air bladder is inflated, it pushes against the Form-fit liner, forcing the viscous product out of the bottom dispense fitment, resulting in less residual product left in the liner.

 

Bag-in-box will also be on display. Bag-in-box is the ideal packaging solution for food applications ranging in size from 1 liter to 25 liters. CDF offers both form-fit and pillow styles to meet all your bag in box needs.

 

Representing CDF will be Leigh Vaughn, Regional Manager. Leigh has 25 years of sales management experience in the flexible packaging industry. Combining a deep understanding of packaging, industrial applications and direct customer relationships allows Leigh to offer a consultative approach in these areas.

The range of materials that can be used to create packaging appears endless. Leslie Sherr, co-author of Material ConnXion, discusses the amount of renewal resources that can be used to create packaging. Sherr highlights the potential for material created using mushrooms. Ecovative, a company that specializes in bioplastics using mycelium offers an alternative to synthetic polymers.

 

There is no shortage of sustainable packaging material; the place to be looking for innovative sustainable packaging is the Sustainable Packaging Coalition. Sherr explains they have an extensive list of members, some of the world’s leading consumer brands. The coalition also offers curriculum services that provide the fundamentals of a system drive approach to packaging and design innovation.
